Whatever you’re looking to do, selling a car to a dealership is one of the most straightforward ways to part with it while earning top dollar. How does selling your car to a dealership work? Hendrick Chevrolet Monroe explains the steps for Matthews drivers, below.

How to Sell a Car at a Dealership: Getting Started

Technically, selling your vehicle at a dealership canbe as simple as pulling it out of your Waxhaw driveway and heading straight to your dealer of choice. However, following these brief preliminary steps can help ensure a successful sale:

  • Make it Shine: You don’t have to spend a ton of money to make your car look like new, but a good exterior wash and interior detailing can go a long way to make your car look like an attractive acquisition.
  • What Are Your Car’s Top Selling Points?: A detailed service record is sure to earn a higher offer for your vehicle. Additionally, be sure to highlight any desirable features and accessories it has, like heated seats or a bike mount. Dealerships look for these types of benefits when buying a used car because they know they can use it to appeal to certain sets of buyers.
  • Get Your Documentation Ready to Go: Have your car title, state-issued ID, registration, and applicable payoff information ready to go before you visit the dealership.
  • Estimate Your Car’s Value: Estimating the value of your vehicle before you visit the dealership will provide an idea of the offer you should expect. The trade-in calculator on our website can help, as well as reliable resources like and Kelley Blue Book.
